Due to the pandemic, they have moved all of their CPIM (Certified in Planning & Inventory Management), CSCP (Certified Supply Chain Professional) and CLTD (Certified in Logistics, Transportation & Distribution) classes ONLINE with live instruction. Classes are being offered on weekdays, weekends, and weekday evenings.
Both a CPIM Part 1 course and a CSCP course are starting in late January. The CSCP course is starting 1/25 and will meet online Tuesday evenings from 6-9pm Eastern Time for 15 times (45 hours of instruction). The CPIM Part 1 course will begin on 1/26 and meet online Wednesday evenings from 6-9pm Eastern Time for 10 times (30 hours of instruction). They also have an online CPIM Part 2 course scheduled to begin in April that will include 54 hours of instruction.
The CPIM classes provide more in-depth education on operations management and materials management (scheduling, planning, forecasting, inventory management, etc.) topics than what is covered in CSCP classes. CPIM is a series of 2 courses, as compared to CSCP being 1 faster-paced course. The CSCP course covers a wider scope than the CPIM and CLTD courses, as it encompasses the entire supply chain.
